Die Puny Humans

Recently read: ‘Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E’ and ‘Desolation Jones’, both by Warren Ellis, the man behind The Authority and Transmetropolitan. Which is relevant because Nextwave is very much in the style of The Authority, but even more nakedly silly and funny. Highly recommended.

Desolation Jones is Transmetropolitan set in contemporary LA (so a bit less pleasant than the City of TransMet), and is pretty good also, though it lacks the instant brilliance of the earlier series. I suspect it will grow on me over time, and I’ll certainly pick up the next paperback.
